A special presentation was made to two deserving non-Rotarians at a recent Rotary Club of Strathcona Sunrise meeting. Charlotte and Michael Smale, former owners of Benjamin Moore House of Color in Courtenay, were named as Paul Harris Fellows in recognition of their many years of selling event tickets on behalf of community organizations including Rotary. Paul Harris Fellowships, named after the man who first started Rotary, were established in 1957 to honour and thank individuals for their ongoing support of the Rotary Foundation.
